If you have been injured in an accident and the accident in which you were injured was not your fault, then you may be eligible for compensation, irrespective of the type of accident you had or the circumstances surrounding your accident.

You can make a claim for:

  • A slip, trip or fall on the high street;
  • A slip, trip or fall at work;
  • Burns and scolds at work or in public;
  • Road traffic accidents;
  • Public transport accidents, such as those on trains;
  • Medical negligence incidents;
  • Plus much more.

The bottom line is if you have been injured through somebody else’s actions, then you have the legal right to make a claim injury UK.

How much input will I have into the claims process?

Making a claim is a relatively straightforward process for you, and one that minimises your own involvement as much as possible. Your input will be an interview with your solicitor on the phone or in person, and attending a medical examination.

Your claim injury UK lawyer will build a compelling case for financial compensation on your behalf, so that you can concentrate on recovering. If you have not yet decided to make a claim, but you are thinking about doing so, below you will find valuable information to help you ascertain your eligibility for making a claim.

How did your accident happen?

You must be in no way responsible or only partly responsible for the accident in which you were injured to make a claim. If you were wholly responsible for the accident, unfortunately it is unlikely you will be able to make a claim, because the other side will be under no obligation to accept your claim and pay you financial compensation. If you are not sure who was responsible for your accident, then you can still make a claim however.

When did your accident happen?

You only have three years to make a claim from either the date your injuries became clear or from the date your accident happened. This is known as your Date of Knowledge or your Date of Limitation. The three year limit also applies to minors, however it kicks in from the date of their 18th birthday, so minors have until their 21st birthday to make a claim. And in cases of death, the three year limit starts from the date of death.
